    A post on blood and bone marrow was not favorible for donation.I have told my family to donate any and all of my useable parts ect. I have traumatic FM will they still want my donations. Id like to think with all the things I could have done to help my fellow man was lost to this FMS, and when the time comes they wont even want my final gift,

    Could you donate your body/organs to science?

    I think in Oregon you can specify the type of donation. In North Dakota I don't know if they have any type of donor program....

    Something else to feel bad about. We should feel good that we are not passing our illnesses on to others. Stealth pathogens live deep in cells even in our organs and this makes them dangerous for transplantation. The last thing a potential donee needs is rejection or getting our illnesses.

    If anyone wants parts of us to further knowledge about our illnesses, great! If not, let it go and just be determined to do what you can while alive to enhance people's lives.

    Love, Mikie
